New Distributor Offers Customized Material Procurement
New start-up materials distributor Executive Polymer, LLC, Northborough, Mass., boasts a combined 60 years plastics industry experience, specifically expertise with resins and compounds, according to founder and CEO Gregory Bagnoli. The company is basing its business on ‘customized polymer distribution with a heightened focus on value added services beyond material procurement’. Included are on-site warehousing and order fulfillment, down packing, re-packaging, and the ability to service both small and large volume requirements.
Executive Polymer represents a portfolio of resins from global manufacturers to serve a broad range of North American end markets, including consumer goods, electronics, building & construction, automotive, aerospace, and energy. Resin offerings currently include PE, PP, PS, ABS, PC, nylons, polyolefin elastomers and TPUs.
Significant declines in feedstock prices, general year-end slowdown, and resin export/import issues contribute to this trend.
Polypropylene (PP) shortages have forced many processors to move to lower grade resins at the cost of lower performance and processability. Milliken’s DeltaMax Performance Modifiers upgrade these materials to enhance impact resistance, melt flow rates, and sustainability through the use of more recycled material.
In polyethylene, density provides another mechanism to control properties. But it must be specified properly.
